  • Description:
    "What are our priorities? The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Cancer, Reproductive, Cardiovascular and Other Chronic Disease Prevention (CRC) Program works with partners in industry, labor, trade associations, professional organizations, and academia. The program focuses on preventing and reducing: 1. Occupational cancer incidence; 2. Incidence of adverse reproductive outcomes related to work; 3. Occupational cardiovascular disease (CVD) incidence; and 4. Occupational neurologic and renal diseases. What do we do? 1. Conduct research on occupational cancer in high priority worker populations and exposures, and communicate findings. 2. Conduct research on high-priority agents to identify and quantify risk of adverse reproductive health outcomes associated with workplace factors, and communicate findings. 3. Assess the association of workplace factors and exposures with sub-clinical/clinical CVD using a variety of methods. 4. Investigate emerging diseases such as chronic kidney disease in agricultural workers. 5. Create documents to assist stakeholders in CRC prevention efforts. 6. Promote use of CRC research by authoritative organizations, such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, National Toxicology Program, International Agency for Research on Cancer, and National Fire Protection Agency. 7. Collaborate with external researchers to evaluate occupational risk factors in pre-existing health studies." - NIOSHTIC-2 NIOSHTIC no. 20052191
